IARA-FW JI·Huizhou Corridor
'후이저우 회랑'의 디자인 목표는 비오는 날 쉼터를 제공했던 지붕이 있는 골목의 존재를 떠올리며 마을 주민들과의 인터뷰에서 시작되었습니다. 이러한 공간적 경험의 상실은 일상 생활의 불편함을 야기했고, 임시로 만든 캐노피는 미관상 보기 좋지 않고 수명이 짧았습니다. 새로운 지붕 골목은 지역 전통, 현대적 요구, 기술 발전을 결합하여 지속적인 공공 경험을 창출하고 마을의 집단적 기억의 일부가 되었습니다.translate by DeepL
The project is located in Fengwu Village, Biyang Town, Yixian County, Huangshan City. As the most well preserved area of traditional villages in southern Anhui, Yixian County boasts rich natural landscapes and cultural heritage. However, Fengwu Village grapples with challenges common to many ordinary villages, including population outflow, aging demographics, and limited preservation of ancient buildings. In 2023, we initiated the rural revitalization charity project " Fengwu JI". By leveraging design, the initiative takes an international perspective, focusing on local characteristics and employing methods like micro-renewal and the construction of rural culture. The goal is to foster collective efforts, enriching and revitalizing the lives of Fengwu's residents and the broader rural community. "Huizhou Corridor" is one of the sub-projects within this initiative.
The project is located in the old lane at the core of the village. The old lane, approximately 16 meters long, is a crucial traffic space and the villagers' "outdoor living room." The well preserved buildings along the lane, reportedly built in the Qing Dynasty, narrate the history and culture of the village. The lane serves as a central space for socializing, featuring a pavilion called Jixiang Ting, namely Lucky Pavilion, at one end, where villagers gather to eat and chat, especially enjoying the cool breeze during the summer.
The design goal for "Huizhou Corridor" stems from interviews with villagers, recalling the existence of covered alleys that provided shelter on rainy days. The loss of this spatial experience prompted inconveniences in daily life, with makeshift canopies proving aesthetically displeasing and short lived. The new covered alley combines local traditions, contemporary needs, and technological advancements to create a continuous public experience and become part of the village's collective memory.
